Great grapefruit aroma and a slight sweetness. This beer is light yellow and has a strong citrus hops flavor.

P: A clear bright copper with a one finger head that dissapears. S: Despite the name the aroma isnt very strong but you still get some dank, lemons, grass and pine. T: Very herbal and spicy hops, some pine, grapefruit, some fruit punch in there and finally some cracker/bready malt. M: Medium body, with just a bit of bitterness. O: Easy to drink but doesnt stand out as a ipa.

Draft at City beer. Nose is a strong pine with a touch of cattiness. Pour is fairly clear with a small white head. Taste is grassy with some fruit. Taste is a let down after the nose. Ok though.

This was a very good IPA, this was an awesome IPA, loads and loads of hops with a good variety of flavor from citrus to floral to a bit piny. Really enjoyed it

Bomber, dated 6/26. Big fruity hop aroma. Taste is similar with floral and pine flavors layered in. Lingering bitterness on the finish. Clean and tasty, hops hit another level as it warms a bit.

Yup. It’s that good. A dank floral single IPA from Drake’s that kick’s ass for summer. Get it!

22oz bottle -
I always have a place in my ’frig for Drake’s. Any time, any day. So when I come across a new IPA from theirs called Aroma Coma, it’s a no-brainer. Get some. So get some I did and chose a day when I made a new mead to dive in.
The aroma on this is really the star. Just a stunning aroma of fresh hops, like opening a hop bag and inhaling deeply. Floral, citrus, perfume...just really intense and a great showcase of hops. The palate is also quite tasty, and well balanced. Fruity/citrusy hops have a smooth relationship with the malts and it really works and creates a really tasty IPA.

Full disclosure, I bought at Whole Foods and its 8 months old. Very weak nose, heavy on the malt and light on the hops. I’m sure it doesn’t help that its old. Next time I’m checking the dates.

A - Pours a golden hue with a 1.5 finger, off white head that fades quickly.
S - Huge hop notes, citrus, pine, wheat.
T - Lots of citrusey hots up front, grapefruit, citrus, moves into a wheaty middle with a semi-bitter back end.
M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation.
D - This is a great ipa that I could drink all day. Smells heavenly.
